About this property

Beautiful renovated Artist’s farmhouse in Provence, large heated pool

Family-friendly farm stay with outdoor pool and sauna
ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE HOUSE
The house has a little history which is nice to tell. My mother was married to Curd Jurgens for 19 years, before meeting my Greek father. Curd Jurgens was a quite famous Hollywood actor back in the days, playing in moves like ("Michel Strogoff", "The Inn of the sixth happiness", "Battle of Britain", "The spy who loved me", "The enemy below", "And God created Woman" and many more). When they separated, my mother bought this beautiful farmhouse and started renovating it with my father. Then I was born, and we lived there for 9 years. We’ve had many famous visitors, friends of my mother’s from the glamorous times when she was married to Curd. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Maria Schell, Giacometti, Leonard Cohen, Romy Schneider, Herbert Von Karajan and many more came for a relaxed time in the Provence…

ABOUT THE HOUSE
La Madone is Eco friendly, which means we use only organic detergeants, organic soaps, organic disinfectants, No synthetic material, and the pool is cleaned by saline technology so it is chlorine free.
The house is a beautiful renovated provencal farmhouse, in the middle of 7ha of vineyards and fruit trees, completely isolated, with a private road to access the house and no neighbors.
As both my parents were artists, the house is done the way they wanted it, simple, comfortable, rustique and with a lot of character.
The house is 380sqm and has 6 provencal style double bedrooms, some with fireplace in the rooms, all 6 with ensuite bathrooms and WC.
There is also 1 bedroom with bunk beds for children, and another office-library room, next to the master bedroom, just under the roof with 2 single beds. From this room you can access the small terrace on the roof with a beautiful 360 degree view across the vineyards and Roussillon village.
There is an extra studio that is available at an extra cost if you are a big family, that can sleep 2 people.

The sauna has a small room, very fresh, excellent for siestas.
The living room is a 100sqm space, with high Provençal ceiling, and a very large fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped, with professional gas stove and 2 professional ovens, 2 refrigerators, 1 freezer, microwave, 2 dishwashers etc. HI-FI with CD player + ipod input, Cable TV, Fast WIFI internet, DVD player.
The inside dining room seats 14-16 people comfortably. The outside table seats also 14-16 people. You can enjoy the morning sun having your breakfast on the outside table, with the view on the garden and on the valley.
The terrace is a great place to relax during the day and/or have an “aperitif” before dinner.
There is also an outside table and a built-in barbecue, ideal for a great lunch and barbecue cooking. Bbq table sits also 14-16 people.
The garden in front of the house is great for the children. A Table tennis is also available, and a court to play "Petanque", the national sport of the South of France!
The swimming pool is salt technology, so chlorine free. It can be heated if requested. It is a large swimming pool - 14m long and 6 meter large, and great space around the pool to relax, with benches with mattresses and teak lounge chairs. There is also a stone table at the pool, with a metal built roof for the shade, great for a little lunch around the pool.
The cellar is also at your disposal, with our sommelier's selection of beautiful regional and French reds, whites and rosés. The temperature is between 14-17 call it the honesty bar, meaning you take what you want, and leave the corresponding amount on the table. We trust you! Some great activities are available, such as professional masseur, pottery courses, cycling rentals, horse riding, hot air balloon rides and many other activities can be arranged in advance. Cooking services are also available, (Nadege is probably, and without joke one of the best private chefs in the region, she cooks beautifully, and uses organic products from local markets, cheese from the traiteur “Gouin” in Coustellet, meat from the best butcher in the region called “Isnard” in Goult, fresh fish that come every week from Marseille, I do recommend her for a few dinners, you will remember me! and I also recommend her Tarte Tatin for dessert!). Cooking lessons with Nadege are great too. Our past guests have absolutely loved the experience! Christine is also a great sommelier, and she can come and give you a wine tasting with explanation in all the processes of making wine. A great experience too! And with Nadege they often combine their strength and offer a super nice lunch or dinner. ABOUT THE REGION Roussillon is classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France. It is in the middle of the Provence, in the Luberon. It is well known for its red ocred canyons.

The house is 900m (0.55 miles) from Roussillon. Beautiful villages are few kilometers away from the house.

Peaceful country retreat
Family group of 9 adults and two children. Lots of space and areas to relax. Kitchen well stocked with utensils. Pool area fantastic for afternoon swims after day out visiting local villages. Birthday lunch prepared by Nadege was delicious especially the amazing macaron chocolate mousse. Nadege was very welcoming and helpful. Villa was very clean. Wi-Fi intermittent at times. Would highly recommend this Villa.

A wonderful week with friends!
We are a group of friends who spend a week together in an interesting place/country about every four years. This is our fourth adventure together. La Madone is located right up the road from what was Les Reys, where we stayed in 2001, near the charming town of Roussillon. It is a perfect location to explore the hill towns of Provence and extend our investigations to the entire Luberon area of the Vaucluse Provence. The property has a main house which included bedrooms and bathrooms for each of the 5 couples, and a couple of extra bedrooms we didn't use. It has a workable kitchen with plenty of plates, silverware, glasses, and cooking pans which we used when we prepared our traditional themed dinners, on two nights; and where the chef prepared us a delicious meal one night. The refrigerator is ample plus a spare refrigerator, a frozen frig, and a wine cellar for all of the food and drinks necessary for a fun week. Two dishwashers make it a breeze to clean up! The stove/oven is a good one, too. There are also several areas with large tables inside and outside, so choosing the perfect spot to dine adds to the enjoyment. The swimming pool, just a short walk from the house was a life-saver after a hot day of sight-seeing; a natural gathering place. We did not need to use the Artist's Studio. Our host, Nadege, was a sweetheart and helped us understand the washing machine as well as the general household functions. She also secured the chef, Peter, to cook us one dinner, which was delicious! She was always available, if we needed another tutorial on how to do something. The property representative, Vanya, gave us a great list of restaurants in the area, as well as suggestions of things to do. The villa was charming and was kept clean and maintained, so we all felt it was truly our home away from home. There was plenty of room and conversational places to sit and view the surroundings and/or read/talk. We would all recommend it to other groups for a fun place to spend a week together.

Magic Christmas Holiday
Thank you Yvan, for being a wonderful host and for allowing us to spend two weeks over Christmas in your beautiful home. It was the place that long lasting family and friend's memories were made together. Who says Provence isn't four seasons? Part of our family went up to ski for the day (Les Orres) more than once. We visited breathtaking villages and hiked in the gorgeous Cedar Forest. Everything that we could have ever needed was available in your home. Nothing was missing for us to entertain through the holidays. Thank you for the perfect recommendation of a chef ... he was first class. The cleaning staff was also exceptionally helpful (our 6 year old hid one of the house keys in a very obscure place and while the family looked for it for 2 days, they found it in 5 minutes). Your home is perfect and it was obvious from the start it has a heart of it's own. A bientôt
